Colnago knock off

My dad bought this bike in very bad shape but with the reassurance that he found a nice Colnago. Unfortunately it was one of the often found fakes from a bygone era of Colnago popularity. I decided to have it running anyway. Stripped it all down and built it up with bin parts and cheap second-hand finds. The original paint was chipped and poorly retouched by hand - as a reminder I vaguely painted a fake headbadge. Several parts were drilled by a previous owner to appear as higher end gear. The intentions were good... Planning to upgrade it over time. Maybe look for wider rim wheels to fit bigger tires as there is plenty of clearance.
